Mumbai, Oct 1: In a major setback for Arvind Kejriwal, Anjali Damani resigned from a prominent position in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Maharashtra. Damania along with another prominent party leader in the state Preeti Sharma Menon quit on Tuesday, Sept 30.

In an official announcement of their decision of resigning from the posts, Preeti Sharma Menon said, "The last three years have been an amazing journey where many 'aam' folk discovered the country as well as our own selves through the India Against Corruption movement and then through AAP."

"However, every adventure ends and our adventure too ends here. Anjali and I have been battling between our family life, our careers and our party responsibilities. Both of us could not cope up with the multi-tasking that we had to do," Menon added while addressing a press conference in Mumbai on Tuesday.
